This is an easy knit project! The bear is knit in garter stitch (that is knit every row). It is knit flat on regular old straight needles and then seamed up. Ears and eyes and noses are added once stuffed. Gauge is not very important for this bear, just make sure you knit tight so that the stuffing won’t show through. Different sized bears can be made by varying the weight of yarn and the needle size. If your tension is average, then we suggest that you choose a needle size a half size smaller than the recommended needle size on the yarn label.
